Event Report: Bush 4 Spice Brook

Sunday 9th August 2020

Spice Brook 2020What a difference a day made
Not much more than 12 hours
From sunshine and flowers
Then there was rain...and rain...
...and mud...and a bit more rain.

Tracy Burns and family spent a lovely afternoon and evening on Saturday at Spice Brook, putting out controls and then camping in the paddock.  Unfortuntely the weather changed overnight and there were forecasts of 100km/hr winds and rain of 20mm+.   

So raindrops started falling on everyone's heads, but still around 50 orienteers made their way up to Spice Brook on the edge of the Julimar State Forest to participate in the event.  If there weren't enough watercourses already, the tracks also became watercourses too by the end of the event.

What is orienteering?

It's a sport for all ages and abilities. Children, adults, families and groups can enjoy some exercise and a fun outdoor challenge, while at the top end of the field elite athletes can race against tough competition up to an international level.

Some may walk, others may run.  There are no fixed rules on how to get round the course - just aim to find the controls in order for your course.
